Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The use of nanotechnology has unquestioned advantages in the design and preparation of batteries and electrochemical energy storage systems. The main purposes for which nanotechnology is being used in this area are increasing efficiency, in terms of battery capacity or energy density of supercapacitors; reducing material costs, for example, using more readily available carbon-based catalysts or non-precious metals; increasing safety and extending the life cycle; and possibly using recyclable materials at the end of life. Efforts to achieve these goals are mainly directed toward the study and development of nanomaterials and technologies for their production, which should be low-cost and easily scalable to facilitate the widespread production and use of energy storage systems.

In this Special Issue, we invite contributions that explore innovation and originality in nanotechnology applications in batteries and electrochemical energy storage. Submissions may focus on newly developed nanomaterials for electrodes and catalysts, nanostructured electrodes and membranes, better-performing electrolytes, and related nanotechnologies. Survey papers and reviews are also welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
